Product Description

From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Barbara Freethy, comes the first book in the WISH Series!


Three women, three birthdays and one unforgettable night that will change their lives forever.

One night in San Francisco, three women make a birthday wish believing it can't possibly come true. Liz is turning thirty. A successful nurse, she has a good career, but no man to share her life. All her friends are married, and she's alone, still trying to outrun a tragedy from her past. Then she meets a handsome stranger.

Angela, a member of a large, loving Italian family, is facing thirty-five with no baby in the nursery. Eight years of infertility treatments have put a strain on her marriage. Will she have to choose between her husband and having a child? When she is mugged by an unexpected assailant, her life takes a new turn.

Carole, a corporate wife, is staring down forty candles. Having grown up poor, she worked hard to get ahead, but when her kids bail on her birthday, and she discovers her husband with another woman, she realizes that she may have nothing at all. She goes back to where it all began, the mother she left behind, and the man whose heart she once broke.

Three women, three birthdays and a night of events that connects them in unexpected ways ...

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed March 8 2012
By Suzy Carpenter - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I know I only paid $2.99 for this book, but I was very disappointed in the length. I enjoyed her writing and the characters. The character development was shallow. I hope this short story grows up one day and becomes a real novel. The actual 'book' is less than 70% of the contents. I finished reading the story and there was still 30% of the book left to read. It was all samples of other books; a marketing trick. With amazon, you can download samples and this is a good feature. Why do they need to fill up a book with so many samples....why, of course, to fill up the pages. I will be very careful in the future when a download a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars really, every woman's story Jan. 15 2012
By Buffalo Girl - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I feel like so many women have experienced something like what the women in this story go through, I see myself and my friends in these pages. It's a really heartwarming story about how you can find what you're looking for when you least expect it, sometimes when you're even close to giving up hope. I'm going to tell my friends in my yoga group to read it. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a story with romance and real emotion.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect blend! Jan. 18 2012
By Lynn Hanna - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
We all have milestones in our lives. They define where we are in life and they remind us of what we hope to accomplish, what we wish for in the future. A SECRET WISH is the perfect blend of these elements. The ties between the characters are at once subtle and profound. I know and understand these women and their challenges. I care about them and I was immediately engaged in each of their emotional and rewarding stories. I'm so glad that this is going to be a series. Can't wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars could not stop once I started reading - have your tissues ready Feb. 12 2012

This was a very enjoyable book, even though I thought I knew how things would turn out (and I was right) the journeys each woman traveled to get there were compelling. The character development made me care about the women and their experiences, well done.

I like all of Barbara Freethy's books. I like them because they have a lot of mystery to them and not all mushy romance. I have read all she has published so far.
